Climb Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge from Grindelwald, Switzerland (2 days)

Climb Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge from Grindelwald, Switzerland (2 days) | undefined

Join Daniel, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for this incredible ascent of central Switzerland's iconic Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge. Over the course of two days, we will climb and scramble our way to the summit, enjoying spectacular views as we go.



2 Days

Jun - Sep




* Summit one of the most iconic mountains in Switzerland.

* Enjoy stunning views all along the ridge line and from the top.

* Get great views out over Monch and Jungfrau.


Towering 3.867 meters above sea level, Eiger is perhaps the most famous mountaineering destination in the Bernese Oberland.

Over the course of two days, we will climb this iconic Swiss peak via the popular Mittellegi Ridge, enjoying a quintessential alpine experience and taking in some incredible views along the way.

After meeting up in the nearby town of Grindelwald, we will take the train to Eismeer station and begin a three to four-hour scrambling and climbing ascent to the Mittellegihut, in which we will spend the night.

The next day is summit day, so after getting an early start, we will begin our four-hour climb to the summit along the exposed and narrow Mittellegi Ridge.

This climb is rated at UIAA 3+ and requires a combination of pitched-out climbing and scrambling in order to reach the summit. Previous ridge line climbing is required for this trip.

Making a smaller ascent before this trip in order to acclimatize is also recommended.

However, once you reach the top, the views out over the mountains, glaciers and valleys of the Bernese Oberland are stunning. All the effort required to get to the tops is paid back handsomely with these unbelievable views.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this challenging but amazing 2-day ascent of Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 2-day mountaineering expedition to the summit of the Matterhorn!

Mountain Guide

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.
